My Most Favorite!

Hey there Fellow Crafters! Happy Wednesday to ya!
I'm probably going to be posting a little less the next few weeks
With Summer break, and a few other things going on
here at home - I thought I would get out more and spend 
some extra time on the road to see some friends & family
this year! Don't Worry - I will still be crafting!!
Cuz I always enjoy Summer break Crafting time! :)
But may not be visiting your blogs as often as I always do - 
you know you guys inspire me to be better! :)
But I think a little break from the internet will do me some good!

Between Facebook commenting and Blog commenting -
it can take a few hours of time up - then I still have to craft
and do things around my home - It's just nuts how much time
we all spend on the computer! Am I right? :)

I promise I will be around - I still have DT Posts to do
which by the way I've done most of them through all of JUNE!
Can you believe that? Neither can I! HAHAHA

Anyway, I'll stop Jibber Jabbering now and show ya my Card! :)

I'm using a beautiful Sentiment Stamp from
Neat & Tangled
Yup, Another FABULOUS Stamp Company I LOVE!

I did another "CAS" Card! I think I'm getting the hang of them!

Recipe for this card -

Cardstock - Canson Watercolor Paper, Stampin' Up
Sentiment - Neat & Tangled (My Favorite)
Stitched Card Mat Die - MFT Die-namics (Blueprint #13)
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
WOW Embossing Powder (Primary Ebony)
Watercolors - Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry, Wild
Honey, Ripe Persimmon
Sequins - CDD, Simon Says Stamp
Black Licorice Trendy Twine
After doing the water coloring, I used my Misti Tool
 to get a nice clean stamped image then did my heat embossing

Oh I just love this Theresa! The water colors and the large black sentiment are just perfect! The twine adds just the right touch too! I know what you mean about the hours it can take on the computer visiting blogs. I had to give that up a while back to focus on an exercise routine. Blogging is definitely more fun but I'm trying to be healthy haha! I wish you a wonderful summer! I can't wait to see what you make next :)

This is gorgeous my friend! I'm loving the watercolored background, the colors are so pretty. And, I adore this sentiment. The black and white twine sets it off fabulously.
I am way behind on my crafty time also, life sure gets in the way at times, doesn't it?! We are working like crazy to finish up the VBS set and then I'll have my grands for a visit. So, not much crafty time in my future either. But that's is good and we need to enjoy it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend sweet friend!
